Noon-1:30p.m. BSG: The Birth of a Legend

Go behind the scenes of the 1978 series with tales from the original Colonial Fleet and invention of an empire. EMP|SFM curator Brooks Peck interviews Battlestar Galactica creator/producer Glen Larson and actor Richard Hatch (Apollo).

2:30p.m.- 4:00p.m. Sex, Blood and Cylons: The Re-imagination of Battlestar Galactica

In 2004, Battlestar Galactica returned to television, taking the sci-fi world by storm. EMP|SFM curator Brooks Peck leads a discussion with Executive Producer Ronald D. Moore and principal cast members Edward James Olmos, Michael Hogan, Tahmoh Penikett and Kate Vernon.

“This exhibition is the first of its kind for Battlestar Galactica,” says Brooks Peck, curator of the exhibition. “We dig deep into both the original and new series; explore the complex characters and storylines; and offer a unique presentation of props, interactive stations and educational programs that deliver the drama and adventure directly to our visitors.”

"Over its four season run on Syfy, Battlestar Galactica became an iconic series that not only entertained, but fulfilled the promise of all great science fiction. It provoked us into examining our world and ourselves through its politically-charged, socially-relevant, religious and technological themes," said Mark Stern, Executive Vice President, Original Programming, Syfy, and Co-head, Original Content, Universal Cable Productions. "It is an honor for us to partner with EMP|SFM in this one-of-a-kind opportunity to experience BSG in an up-close and personal way."
